Joseph Patrick Presents The Very Hungry Caterpillar this summer, directed by me, and featuring a cast of stellar local puppeteers and a menagerie of bright, colourful puppets!
Performed my Good Old Fashioned Punch & Judy Show at this marvellous outdoor music event at Historic Fort York yesterday, for a small group of families sitting on the grass in the "kid area".
The lovely and charming Amelia Blaine worked with me as my roadie, my stage manager, and as my carnival barker -- or "Bottler" in Punch & Judy parlance -- introducing the show with a brief comedy routine between she and Mr. Punch.
If you know your Punch & Judy, then you know that most of the fun comes from the audience itself. The audience IS the show! This one was no different, with one particularly vocal and rambunctious tyke sitting near the front who insisted -- over and over again -- that my crocodile ate the CN Tower.
A good old fashioned good time was had by all. Thanks Amelia!
Actor and Puppeteer. That's me! Here's where you'll find all my news!
